Dear OWASP Members,

Wednesday we sent out the ballots for the 2016 WASPY Awards to all members who were current prior to June 20, 2016.  Some of you received a ballot addressed with an incorrect first name.

During the process of collecting and uploading the individual contact information into the voting platform, there was a mail merge glitch when the de-dupe function was triggered. This resulted in some members receiving an email which was not addressed to them. Immediate action was taken to corrected the issue.

The incorrect names did not affect your ballot as ballots are associated with the member’s email address not their name. None of the votes have been compromised and members only received one email with a link to their ballot. The link to the ballot is a unique link specifically generated for each individual and is NOT to be shared with anyone.

On behalf of the OWASP Foundation we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.  

Sincerely, OWASP Staff
